I've been a lurker not a poster so I guess I should introduce myself: when I was 20 I knew I wanted to get a tattoo but I looked to the future and didn't want to get something that I would regret when I'm 80 like my friend's stupid "HIM" heartagram tattoo.

So I got this:

If you still doubt my dedication to the Cubs I almost got murdered at Citizen's Bank Park a couple years ago by bloodthirsty Phillies fans for having the audacity to wear a Cubs jersey. If anybody has ever been to that or that god awful dump known as the Vet you know it takes serious cajones to wear the other team's colors

I'll try to post more. I call being the Taco of this League. Instead of hoarding kickers expect me to hoard LOOGYs

It was Sosa's last year with the team (2004?) and there were Dominican musicians wearing Sosa jerseys and playing drums. Security removed them from the park "for their own safety" because the fans were throwing things at them and calling them all sorts of racial slurs I had never even heard before.

I was 17 or 18 but I told them I was 15 in the hopes that they would leave me alone. It only made them more belligerent. Some drunk bro went as far to chest bump me when I was on my way to the bathroom. I called customer service after the game and told them I was nearly physically assaulted and security did nothing to protect me and the operator told me that I shouldn't go to Phillies games and hung up on me. At least I didn't get thrown up on.

All my other experiences going to Cubs games were quite pleasant. I was at Shea in 2008 the night we eliminated the Mets from playoff contention. I had three hour subway ride from Flushing to south Brooklyn and I was terrified after my Phillies experience. All they did was shake their head at me and say "Well, you must have had a good time."

Another random fact: Least favorite Cub ever: Todd Huntley. I hated him with a passion.

So wait I'm looking at the lineup and it says 3 IF does that mean you can have all 1B in your lineup? That doesn't seem right.

Alright, I just emailed Sam. It's been awhile since I did fantasy baseball (and that did not go well...) but I'll give it a shot.

Those are just the requirements, you have to have three starting players that can play in the IF so I guess you could get all 1B if thats what you wanted lol, but if you had 3 1B you could only start 2 of them (Unless they could play other positions) 1 at 1st and 1 at DH. But I digress... unless you have a player like Darwin Barney who can play SS and 2B you can only put the player at their normal position ( or DH)

I just got in! Thanks again for the invite. This is a crazy week for me, but once the weekend comes, I am hoping to sit down and study the rules and format for this league, other than the skimming i've done on this topic. I couldn't even think of a cool name at the moment, but i'll take care of all of that...need sleep....

At worst, you can join me in the basement. But you might surprise yourself. You might do well enough to mock me while I'm in the basement.
